What mistake should I avoid after a motorcycle accident?
Some of the most common mistakes I see motorcycle drivers make when they’re involved in an injury wreck is, first, they do not get to the doctor soon enough or quick enough. They don’t do what the doctor asks them to do. They don’t follow the treatment plan the doctors give them. Many times, these injuries are serious and you need to follow the doctor’s plan. First of all, if you don’t follow the doctor’s plan or recommendations, the insurance company will use that against you when you go for a settlement. Make sure the information you give the medical provider is accurate. Make sure you give them a full history. Don’t try to keep from them that you’ve been in wrecks before and you’ve been injured before; that’s okay. Truth is always the best policy. I would say, and the summary of this one is, get to the doctor, do what they ask you to do, and be totally honest with your doctor.The second mistake clients make is that they don’t hire a lawyer soon enough, and so motorcycle drivers don’t have the critical information and evidence they need when they try to settle their case or go to trial. If you hire an attorney early on, they have investigators; they can contact all the witnesses, and get statements. They can also preserve their contact information. They are able to take pictures at the scene; they can take pictures of the vehicles. If there are people that have been lost, that saw the wreck, they can find these people and bring them back into the case. Bottom line is to get an attorney hired as soon as you can so you don’t lose any evidence, and you get all the treatments you need, and you can have a successful outcome on your case.
